Celebrate, Double Negative, Potluck Blogfest & Freebies

Okay, forget that whole Zen, existential, Bonsai tree thing I've been talking about for two weeks.  My WIP doesn't respond to tweaking and delicate pruning.  I had to whomp on Ch 7 and beat it into submission.  
My new motto is: 
"Fists of Revision Fury!" 
* Cue music - "Everybody was King Fu Fighting" *

This week I'm celebrating:
1)  I finished revising Ch 7 and am starting Ch 8.  Fists, don't fail me now!
2)  My awesome CP, T.F. Walsh, put her novel Cloaked in Fur on sale last week at 99-cents and it sold a lot!  Yay, Tania!
3)  My friend, the fabulous C. Lee McKenzie, is releasing a book today -- Double Negative -- read on for more info!

Does anyone ever feel they have to go ten rounds with their writing before they win?

Hutchison Mc Queen is a sixteen-year-old smart kid who screws up regularly. He’s a member of Larkston High’s loser clique, the boy who’s on his way to nowhere—unless juvenile hall counts as a destination. He squeaks through classes with his talent for eavesdropping and memorizing what he hears. When that doesn’t work, he goes to Fat Nyla, the one some mean girls are out to get and a person who’s in on his secret—he can barely read. And then Maggie happens. For twenty-five years she’s saved boys from their own bad choices. But she may not have time to save Hutch. Alzheimer’s disease is steadily stealing her keen mind.
